M. Russell Ballard | 8 October 2018


“And if it so be that you should labor all your days in crying repentance unto this people, and bring, save it be one soul unto me, how great shall be your joy with him in the kingdom of my Father!” —Doctrine & Covenants 18:15



“Viewed from that eternal perspective, what we are to do seems so simple and clear, but I know that member missionary work can be challenging. Please allow me to suggest three simple things that we can do to assist in this divinely commissioned responsibility: (1) Exercise our faith and pray for help in finding ways to share the gospel; (2) Leaders must lead by example; (3) Member missionary work does not require the development of strategies or gimmicks. It does require faith.” M. Russell Ballard
